Sri Venugopal Goswami is a spiritual teacher in a tradition which has nurtured the flame of Bhakti Yoga since the 16th century. He received his musical training from the great Indian vocalist master Pandit Jasraj. The spoken word, the mantra recitations, the subtle tones of the Ragas and the uplifting Bhajans are a deep source of ancient yogic wisdom.
